Windows 7: How could system restore get turned off?

How could system restore get turned off?

I'm wrestling with a hopefully small problem that I just posted - Sudden loss of functionality with youtube - not a show-stopper, but bothersome.

In an attempt to fix this problem, I went to a common "quick resort" I use, namely a system restore to a time when I knew the problem didn't exist.

So I was shocked to find that the system restore was turned off!

This is a computer we've had for six weeks or so (an ASUS laptop). I spent a lot of up-front time configuring it, but then nothing. There is a microscopically tiny chance that I turned off the restore when initially configuring it, but I can't imagine why, and if I did, I'd have likely turned it back on in a moment.

The disk DID come with the single hd partitioned into a C and D, which I then undid, and then using third-party software redid (C for OS and programs, D for data). Maybe my doing one of these things turned off the system restore?
